:30 p.m. by "obama revealed, the man, the president," right here on cnn. >>> overseas now. iraq is reeling under a sear ruz of violent attacks today. several car bombs rocked cities including amara, kirkuk and western basra. gunman hit checkpoints and at least 46 are dead, 125 wounded. many of those killed are iraqi soldiers. the u.n. special representative for iraq is condemning the attacks. one of the bombs went off near the french consulate in nasiriyah. earlier we spoke to reuters' baghdad bureau chief patrick markey. >> these kind of attacks happen at least once a month now. they're still carrying out a coordinated attacks on various cities once a month. this is certainly not the worst that we've had this year, even if the death toll is at 70. we've had death tolls of more than 100 in one day. as you point out, no one has claimed responsibility but even after u.s. troops have left, iraq is still fighting various insurgent groups, including local wing of al qaeda and former member saddam hussein's baathist party. >> violence has been on the rise in iraq in recent months. 325
, the president all tonight right here on cnn. >>> iraq is reeling under a series of violent attacks today. several car bombs rocked cities. gun men attacked check points. at least 64 people are dead and 200 others wounded. many of those killed were iraqi soldiers. the u.n. special representative for iraq is condemning the attacks. one of the bombs went off near the french consulate. >> these attacks happen at least once a month now. it's just a coordinated attack on various cities once a month. this is certainly not the worst attack this year. death tolls of more than 100 in one day. no one has claimed responsibility but even after the u.s. troops have left iraq is still fighting various groups including local wing of al qaeda and former member on the party. certainly a dark day for iraq but not the bloodiest we have seen this year. >> violence have been on the rise in iraq. 325 people were killed in july. >>> right now to sir i where there is no end to the deadly violence there. according to the opposition government forces are dropping barrel bombs filled in tnt, nails and fuel. at leas
events. about ten years ago, perhaps, iran was under direct threat. those who have occupied iraq and afghanistan were threatening iran on a daily basis. i do not believe that we are under any special conditions now from those sources, but the fact that the world -- historic period in the world is coming to an end, an era during which power has set the first and last word. those holding the keys to power have set the fate of many populations. that era is coming to an end. >> the big catalyst for protests at the moment in the middle east was the video that was released which mocked the prophet muhammed. as a result, there was an attack as you know on the american embassy in benghazi in libya. the ambassador christopher stevens was murdered. do you condemn the attack which caused his murder? >> translator: fundamentally, first of all, any action that is provocative offends the religious thoughts and feelings of any people, we condemn. likewise, we condemn any type of extremism. of course, what took place was ugly, offending the holy prophet is quite ugly. this has very little or not
, but we have made some very clear red lines there. >> people will say this is very reminiscent of iraq. you have a bad guy who is believed to be in the process of either developing or has wmd. we know what happened with iraq, that that intelligence was flawed. can america, can the world, risk another flawed military action if it turns out ahmadinejad is actually telling the truth? >> first of all, it's very different from iraq. i personally never saw any intelligence that was at all persuasive on the nuclear issue. i wanted the inspectors to go in there for a simple reason. when the first gulf war was over, we began an accounting of all of saddam's weapons of mass destruction, which mostly consisted of chemical warheads and chemical and biological agents. in 1998, when he kicked the inspectors out, there were two biological agents and two chemical agents, a substantial quantity unaccounted for. we bombed, the u.s. and uk. after 9/11, i thought it was important for the inspectors to go in, try to find out whether we had destroyed that or not. we later learned when he was deposed that it
that the taliban were able to take up. well, u.s. forces were very much focused on iraq, but you speak to the critics, and they will say that they -- it did not achieve what they were hoping to achieve. that really to train up the afghan armed forces. it provides a stable environment to a certain extent to allow that transfer of power, that training program to operate, but i'm not exactly quite sure whether or not, don, it's achieved its ultimate goal. in the process this has cost a lot of money, and do date more than 2,000 u.s. soldiers have died. >> we have heard a lot about those green on blue attacks with the recent uptick in violence. especially those green on blue attacks. is there a timing problem here with the troop departure? >> it's certainly not ideal. you get the impression that everyone wants to get out of here. to tell you the truth, don, when you speak to troops off the record that is what they will definitely tell you. i mean, they've had to -- this was always kind of the plan that president obama boem when he gave the green light for this surge back in 2009, he said th
iraq war but approaching the 2000 number as the president tries to wind that down. one other point to note since we're having this conversation about the candidates for president, lot of those veterans who are coming home from iraq and afghanistan, here's where they live. the darker the state, the higher the veteran population. you see a state like virginia, state like new hampshire with a higher percentage of population of veterans in some of the battleground states, important constituency. >> dan, on the trail, in stump speeches, does the president regularly talk about afghanistan? >> well, it's never the focus of the president's stump speech unless he is talking to veterans or he's in a region that's heavy military. what you hear from the president is this promise, this campaign promise that he made to not only end the war in iraq but also wind down the war in afghanistan, as john was just talking about, pulling out troops by the end of 2014, handing over security to the afghan forces. but there's still a lot of concern out there about whether or not the afghan forces can handle
continues. every day hundreds of people in afghanistan, pakistan and iraq are killed. would it not have been better to have a more precise analysis and find out the true in-depth reason of the events of september 11th, make those findings transparent to the populations and the nations across the world, and then have a response in unison? of course the expense would have been much less. do you know how much has been spent during the afghan and iraq war? >> a considerable amount of money. but let me ask you this, mr. president. if nearly 3,000 iranians had been murdered in the way that americans were on 9/11 in tehran, how would you have reacted to the country that you believed had done that? >> translator: so you're saying that the country of afghanistan was at fault? was responsible? so you're seeing the responsible party as a whole nation? >> i think it is inarguable that al qaeda and osama bin laden's men, who worked for him, were training in afghanistan. so afghanistan was certainly knowingly harboring terrorists who were training to commit atrocities. >> translator: i believe that you ca
opponent said that it was tragic to end the war in iraq. and he won't tell us how he'll end the war in afghanistan. well, i have and i will. and while my opponent would spend more money some military hardware that our joint chiefs don't even want, i will use the money we're no longer spending on war to pay down our debt and put more people back to work, rebuilding roads and bridges and schools and runways, because after two wars, that have cost us thousands of lives and over a trillion dollars, it's time to do some nation building right here at home. you can choose a future where we reduce our deficit without sticking it to the middle class. independent experts say that my plan would cut our deficit by $4 trillion. and last summer i worked with republicans in congress to cut a billion in spending because those of us who believe government should be a force for good should work harder than anyone to reform it so it's leaner and more efficient and more responsive to the american people. i want to reform the tax code so that simple, fair and ask the wealthiest households to pay tax on
years ago, because i was going to iraq, i asked you to be there for my dad. and you were. and for last four years, i can say with certainty he has been there for us. [ applause ] in moments both public and private, he's the father i've always known, the grandfather my children love and adore, and the vice president our nation needs. so tonight, mr. chairman, it's my great honor to place into nomination for the office of vice president of the united states, my father, my hero, joe biden. i move to suspend the rules and nomination by acclamation joe bid biden. as a democratic vice presidential candidate. [ applause ] >> the son of joe biden saying he wants to suspend the former rules, the formal roll call, and nominate joe biden. >> i know joe must be emotional right now. when your son calls you a hero, you got to feel it in the heart. we have a motion to suspend the rules and nominate joe biden by acclamation as a democratic party's vice presidential candidate. is there a second? all in favor of the motion say aye. all opposed. the ayes have it. the motion is adopted. pursuant to the co
and the gaza strip, and large protests expected in baghdad and iraq's second largest city, basra, as well as amman, jordan. ian lee has been following the developments in cairo. ian, what's the scene like right now? >> reporter: well, right now, christine, we still have battles going on between protesters and police. we're still seeing the tear gas used, rubber bullets used, protesters responding with molotov cocktails and rocks. this battle has been going on since wednesday night. it's now friday, just about noon, so it's been a sustained battle. really no either side getting the upper hand on the other, but we're seeing injuries and more injuries on both sides as this battle continues. it is happening near the u.s. embassy on a road that goes from tahrir square to the u.s. embassy. right now, the protesters are about roughly 80 to 100 yards from the embassy, but the police have been able to hold them off. the military's also building a huge, concrete wall on the road leading to the embassy. this wall is about ten feet tall, and we've seen this used in the past to stop protesters from ad

jihadists who taught in iraq. and, yes, they are looking not only to the fall of assad, but creating the american militant. >> is this al qaeda? >> not necessarily at all. and i think you have to future in perspective that these are people that have come to file for their own ropes. this there are some from europe, so many fighters that he saw coming in from france or other european states, you look at the unemployment level there you can young men with no live, just like iraq, this become as magnet for them. ivan watson told me he flew to turkey on a plane load just libyans on board that plane. so they are present. they are on the ground. but it doesn't mean al qaeda. and remember this, what was the fate of those in jihadist fighters in iraq? i saw them lined up on their knees with smuslims behind them respect forced to leave or killed outright. >> and of course the obama administration has said syrians should determine their own future. but should the u.s. be concerned about islamists getting in as part of -- >> it's too late. because when i talked to the activists in homs, for exa

. syria state run media say the military killed a large number of terrorists. officials with iraq's interior ministry says a 4-year-old girl was killed when rockets were fired from iraq. >>> next, we go back to aleppo. crisis in siria, inside aleppo, next. sfx: sounds of marching band and crowd cheering and i found myself in the middle of this parade honoring america's troops. ich is actually quite fitting because geico has been serving e military for over 75 years. aawh no, look, i know this is about the troops and not about me. right, but i don't look like that. who can i write a letter to about this? geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. you walk into a conventional mattress store, it's really not about you. they say, "well, if you wanted a firm bed you can lie on one of those. we provide the exact individualization that your body needs. welcome to the sleep number store's biggest sale of the year. not just ordinary beds on sale, but the bed that can change your life on sale. the sleep number bed. never tried this before. this is your b
into another iraq. >> and they've said that that explicitly, about turning libya into another iraq. how did -- so many people are deciding, could you tell me more about those who are very anti nus their sentiment. >> these people did say they do not agree with this attack. they really felt ashamed by what happened, saying that diplomats here, foreigners here should be protected, but at the same time, they said they reject the presence of any foreign troops or any sort of outside military intervention in libya. they said we've also heard that last year during the revolution, there was unity in the stands of libyans who were fighting the regime of moammar gadhafi. they welcomed the support of nato air strikes, but said they did not want to see any boots on the ground. so at this point, this could be a real controversial issue here in libya. we have to wait and hear, see what the libyan government officials say about this. they have said they're unable to deal with groups. >> and that, nick kristof, let me bring you in here. some people had told her tonight, regular libyans, they don't want am
recovered a trove of documents in iraq, basically the sort of rosetta stone of al qaeda in iraq. when they looked at these documents and analyzed them, they found that 40% of the foreign fighters coming into iraq were coming from libya, which was an unexpected thing to find. historically libya has provided quite a lot of suicide attackers to al qaeda, and the group that is sort of deemed to be behind this attack is probably one of these sort of splinter groups from al qaeda central. >> how strong is their presence there in libya, and who leads them, do we know? >> reporter: you know, i mean there's a sort of umbrella group, according to the libyan -- former libyan jihadist, supporters of sharia. i think a lot of this is relatively secretive. this is not obviously an organization that operates in a very overt manner. my guess is that we're talking about a few hundred people at most. it doesn't represent the tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of people who were taking up arms against gadhafi. they have -- as the reporter in libya indicated, being able to do some attacks on weste
'm saying he's responsible for failure in afghanistan and iraq. iraq is now disintegrating, al qaeda is coming back. we didn't leave a residual force in afghanistan, he overruled his military advisers on several occasions, including 30,000 instead of 40,000 for the surge and accelerated withdrawal dates and now we have a situation where taliban and our enemies know we are leaving, and the whole premise, was to train afghans to turn over these responsibilities to them, and leave. now how can we train and work with these people if so many them are killing americans we can't even train and operate with them? by that policy, it has been an abject failure. >> we'll talk more with senator mccain about domestic issues a bit later in the program. first, bob baer and fran townsend. fran, served as a member of the cia external advisory committee, and last month visited libya with her employer, mccannkancan forbes. he said that there were security concerns. >> we had a long conversation, especially with darna, to the east of benghazi, and he was aware of the increased threat. we talked about th

re-election and talking about his record and everything from ending the war in iraq to again, health care and also this idea that he's going to fight for the middle class. it's not really a new theme, but that's what they plan to continue hammering home. this idea that he's going to look out for everyday people unlike the republican ticket. one thing they did say is this is going to be a working convention. that's how they described it and they'll work on getting people registered to work and knock on doors, canvass and in doing so, earn a ticket to fill that huge stadium that he's going to be speak at. so we don't have too much of a preview of the speech and we'll try to contain and make the case that he's the one that will give him more time to keep the economy back on track, fred. >> athena jones. thanks so much in urbandale. we'll take the president live when he arrives there in iowa. >>> let's talk about the democratic national convention which starts tuesday, charlotte, north carolina. that's the place right there. some of the high-profile speakers include the first lady, forme

[ male announcer ] citi turns 200 this year. so why exactly should that be of any interest to you? well, in that time there've been some good days. and some difficult ones. but, through it all, we've persevered, supporting some of the biggest ideas in modern history. like the transatlantic cable that connected continents. and the panama canal that made our world a smaller place. we supported the marshall plan that helped europe regain its strength. and pioneered the atm, so you can get cash when you want it. it's been our privilege to back ideas like these, and the leaders behind them. so why should our anniversary matter to you? because for 200 years,
and politics is like throwing gas on a fire, and nowhere is that truer right now than in iraq. the iraqi vice president has been sentenced to death on charges of running death squads. this is the current one, not sadd saddam's, the current one. now, he in turn is accusing the prime minister, the current one, al maliki of carrying out a political vendetta. the vice president is a prominent sunni muslim. al maliki is a shiite. i think you get the picture here. that vp is in exile in turkey. today he declared his innocence. >> i totally reject and will never recognize the unjust, the politically motivated verdict, which was expected from the outset of the trial. >> coinciding with the verdict, a wave of bombings. look at pictures. they are becoming familiar elsewhere. they were up familiar at one time. this time more than 90 people wounded -- 90 people killed and 300 wounded aacrocross the coun. sunni insurgents belonging to al qaeda in iraq claiming responsibility. you might sum this up in one word. mess. ivan watson is monitoring the developments from istanbul. last i checked the americans spe
